Let's Party!

I am in LOVE with these images from The Greeting Farm (formerly Pink Poison)! I really wanted to try them out and noticed that there are digital images available for sale too. So... I took the plunge and ordered this one - called Dorothy Anya. I was a little nervous about trying it with my Copics, but it works PERFECTLY!!! No smearing at all! I printed them out on my favorite white CS (Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select) and they look JUST like I stamped them!

So.... here is my first attempt at Anya:

I wanted to make her more multi-purpose, so I covered her gingham gown with sparkly, pink paper -- perfect for a party dress! Then, I added a strip of black organdy that I gathered and adhered to the bottom of her skirt. The little cupcake image is from Kim Hughes' Tag! You're It set. (Told you that set was super versatile!) The sentiment is from Kim's Bithday Bash set.

My cousin, Addy, just turned 4 years old this weekend and I wanted to make her a little Anya card that looked like her. It's hard to believe that 4 years have passed since she was born! Addy has Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect that is inoperable. When she was first born, everyone was praying for her to make it through her first few months. And... now here we are, 4 years later -- with a beautiful, smart little girl - full of life! She's such a doll! :)

(The patterned paper is by Sassafras Lass & I just blanket stitched around the edges with embroidery floss.)
Thanks for coming to my blog! What do you think about these little Anya images? Cute, huh!?! :) Take a chance and try out digital. It's super fun!
